So last Sunday, Steve Harvey made the mistake that pretty much any host of a beauty pageant (or awards show) must fear: he read out the wrong name for the winner. He’s apologized for his mistake. Now the question is: will he be back next year? The Miss Universe producers have weighed in.
Producer Mark Shapiro said:
I definitely want him back, and I would hate to see him not come back. He’s going to want a shot to redeem himself.”
And a whole lot of people are going to tune in to see if he redeems himself, I bet: or at least, that’s the hope ;).
Look, the world forgives, the world forgets. It could happen to the best of us. He was so well intended, and he’s such a good guy, and it was really such a mistake that I hope people don’t hold this over him other than for just a good laugh and let it pass.”
I do believe that, ultimately, it was an honest mistake. People has a picture of the card that Steve misread. It looks like he didn’t look at the bottom of the card, where the winner’s name was printed. He’ll make sure to read the ENTIRE card next year! Will you tune in to watch if he’s the host again?
